A city magistrate’s court in Mumbai on Saturday expanded the judicial custody of Indrani Mukerjea, the prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, and 2 others till November 7 after their earlier remand finished. This was the first time all the 3 charged– Indrani, her former other half Sanjeev Khanna and also previous driver Shyamvar Rai– were produced before the court after the CBI took control of the investigation in September.
The CBI attorney looked for a fresh consent to interrogate the trio in jail. The magistrate N B Shinde claimed it might investigation them even more till November 7.
To a court’s question, the CBI legal representative stated the agency had actually quizzed Indrani two times, but had to question her further. CBI has additionally sought Indrani’s voice example for validating phone call records which purportedly showcase her voice. Yet on Sunday her lawyer Gunjan Mangala claimed her client had been feeling sluggish and also required an appropriate medical treatment.
Indrani had accepted the company but her medical problem was bad, as a result she needs to not be questioned, the attorney stated. The magistrate after that directed CBI to get Indrani’s health and fitness record prior to questioning her. At the same time, Sanjeev Khanna’s legal representative Shreyansh Mithare informed the court that the CBI officers looked his client in jail prior to the examination. When the court sought explanation, the looking into police officer claimed they recovered a matchbox and some cigarettes from Khanna’s ownership.
Nonetheless, the magistrate claimed the CBI could not carry out a personal search of the charged as he remained in judicial custodianship, yet the prison authorities might search him before the interrogation if CBI had any uncertainty.
The court also routed Indrani’s lawyer to ask for her approval for voice sample examination. Mangala said Indrani was “palpitating” as well as was not clinically and also psychologically fit to give consent now. The court later on routed that Indrani be created on November 3 if her medical problem permitted, to make sure that her authorization could be obtained.
The only time Indrani talked today was when the court asked her “are you in a placement (to give approval for voice sampling), to which she responded, “No. Sir”. Or else throughout the hearing she was resting on a bench in the court room.
Indrani, Khanna and also Rai are charged of killing her 24-year-old little girl Sheena in April 2012 as well as throwing away the physical body in a Raigad forest. Indrani was lately hospitalised after her’ platelet matter’ dipped significantly; yet clinical test ruled out the reports that she had actually acquired dengue. Earlier, on October 2, she had been hospitalised after she fell unconscious, fuelling supposition that she had actually overdosed on anti-depressant drugs. But the probe by Inspector General (prisons) dismissed the possibility of overdose, poisoning or self-destruction proposal and also she was returned to jail on October 6.
